About Community E-Forum

Community E-Forum, The Pittsburgh Foundation’s new blog, is for everyone who shares our mission to make this community a better place for us all.

At The Pittsburgh Foundation, we plan to develop a more interactive,  transparent, and collaborative  relationship with our donors and the community at large. We will offer up the Foundation as the ‘go-to’ resource for philanthropy in our region. We will strengthen partnerships with funding organizations and community leaders around issues that are pivotal to Pittsburgh’s future.

We look forward to hearing from you.
